Understanding the news: Tomb of a nobleman and his wife, New Kingdom (Late Period caching)
Article contains images of human remains
The tomb of Amenemhat and his wife Amenhotep was found at Draa Abul Naga, on the west bank near Luxor. Unfortunately the tomb is not in good condition, as you can see from the state of the coffins and the serdab statue of the tomb owner and his wife in the linked article.
Originally dated to the 18th Dynasty, the tomb also contains material dated to the 21st and 22nd Dynasties. The reuse of tombs is a fairly common occurrence so it will take scientific investigations a while to piece together how the various items and individuals discovered in the tomb relate to one another and the time periods from which they come.
For those with keen eyes, the final image of a coffin in this report shows a scene of the funeral of the owner before their tomb chapel on the right hand side.
